So while checking out some videos to post on my blog, I delved into the crazy world of copyright law. Wow! As a teacher, I create lots of materials for my students to use in the classroom. Finding the perfect picture or video is a very time-consuming task (for me, at least, as I have to look at EVERY one). I really like Creative Commons and have been using it for a year now.
I also learned that Wikipedia is an excellent source for copyright information on the media used onsite.
The bottom line - you have to give credit where credit is due! There are many creative people out there who are willing to share their craft in return for a little recognition. As an educator, I appreciate this!
